Recent reports had claimed that James had been “considering” a role on the show, which follows the lives of Chelsea social elite mix of entrepreneurs and heirs such as Spencer Matthews and Millie Mackintosh, but the royal-in-law has now come out to rubbish the rumours.

After that, friends of the alleged couple commented that after a string of dates, their relationship was going from “strength to strength”, though nothing more was ever heard of it.
According to reports in the Sunday Mirror at the time, the new couple had been spotted out together having dinner at the Queen’s Club tennis centre in West London then again at the fashionable Hakkasan restaurant, where onlookers claim they were “openly flirting” with one another whilst they drank wine, tucked away in a “secluded booth”.
A source told the Sunday Mirror newspaper: “They were deep in conversation ad only had eyes for each other. Pippa was all smiles and kept giggling.
“They stayed for nearly three houses and didn’t seem to want the meal to end.”
Eaton educated James is chief executive of Eden Rock Capital Management Group, a company he set-up more than 10 years ago.
A friend of Pippa’s added: “Pippa is quite taken with James. She wants to take things slowly at first but she is ready for a full-time man in her life again.”
